Le Bervic Montmartre

Reviewed 21 August 2009

I have no idea which one is worse, Bervic or HRS. HRS has respond my email/call at the very beginning , and then, my several email not answered, calls not returned. The worst, my money not returned for 3 months.

I booked Bervic this may, and finally canceled teh reservation 4 or 5 days ahead of the deadline through HRS, via which the hotel was booked as well.

When I back home from EURO by the end of May, i found 1 night was charged by Bervic hotel. The HRS email can help me to explain the rest of the story as below

Our hotel was in the part of paris that felt like a flea market mixed with a war zone..

Hundred of people would sell fake bags, cigarettes, drugs etc on streets nearby, other homeless people would sleep on window sills a street away.

It was also far from every site except sacre coer church (that was 5 mins walk)

Toilet had no seat, handle of shower was broken and room was small.

I stayed at this hotel with two friends in mid November of 2008. It was a very last minute booking and so we were just relieved to find somewhere within our budget on such short notice. We paid on average €25 a night each which wasn't too bad, although there was no breakfast and no possibility of it either. But you do get what you pay for.

First of all the hotel is in one of the cheaper, seedier areas of Paris. As soon as you walk out of the metro station (Barbes Rochechouart) you will be presented with men trying to sell you items on street corners (mainly cigarettes – Marlboro Reds anyone?). They’re not very pushy - just ignore them and you'll be fine. Don't be surprised if you see many people jump the gate for the metro, that's the kind of place this is. The area is full of tacky bridal shops, gaudy jewellers and cheap electrical stores, if that gives you any kind of idea of who lives there.
The good thing is that there are plenty of cafés and restaurants in which to eat (there's a 'Quick' a cheaper French version of MacDonalds on the corner of Bervic street, if you feel really cheap) and there are two large supermarkets less than a minute away (Champion to the north and another at the south end of Rue de Clingacourt). There's also a bank (BNP Paribas) a couple of streets behind the hotel (where Rue de Sofia meets Boulevard Barbes) with ATMs inside so you don't have to worry about your credit card details being stolen. If you want to buy any French DVDs or CDs there’s a Virgin Megsatores part of the way up Boulevard Barbes. I found a very good bakery about 3 or 4 minutes away towards the Sacré Coeur (on the south end of Rue Ramey) which was great for getting a cheap but delicious breakfast. You are less than 5 minutes walk away from the front of the Sacré Coeur, but if you've been there before you can just climb up the steps that run down along the east of the building allowing you to skip past all the hordes of tourists (and various salesmen trying to make a quick buck off them) and avoid climbing all those steps.
Best of all the metro station is only a couple of street crosses away so it should never take more than about 30 minutes to get anywhere you like in Paris (taking the pink line #4 you can be in the city's absolute centre in about 10 minutes without having to change line). I had been warned by a French person not to use the blue line (#2) but I went on it (alone) a few times and had no problems. There’s always a risk on any Parisian metro line of getting pick pocketed (at rush hour times you will have to squeeze into the cars like tinned sardines, and that’s the time when you run the biggest risk of having something stolen) so just be aware of that and keep your valuables safely and securely tucked away but somewhere where you can keep an eye on them (i.e. not in a back pocket or in an outer pocket of a backpack, unless you hold it in front of you and watch it at all times). Just be careful at night, coming off the metro into the street – don’t delay in getting to the hotel because there is always a risk that someone will try to steal your wallet in the rather poorly lit streets. If you're very late (after the time that the metro stops – the last trains run from about 12:30 to 1am) chances are that the receptionist will be asleep so you'll have to knock on the window to be left in - just try to be quick because the street isn't the safest that late (although I found that it was fine during the daytime, if a little crowded).

The staff were very friendly and helpful, although we spoke to them in French so they hadn’t any need to speak another language (but as I took it the two that we saw during the daytime had at least basic English). Like in virtually all hotels there is a stand with various leaflets advertising tourist sites and attractions, and some of the information came in handy. They had no problem looking after our bags for us the afternoon after we had checked out.

The room was cleaned every day (that included a Sunday and a French National Holiday) – the beds were made, towels changed, and bin emptied although I doubt that there was any sweeping or dusting during our stay, as the crumbs that we left on the table in the corner of the room the first morning stayed there for the whole 5 days. Items were moved in the room (to make cleaning easier) but nothing was stolen (although we left nothing valuable in the room save our passports).

The room itself was basic. We stayed in a 3 person room, which I take it was one of the larger rooms – pacing the narrow corridor some of the other rooms seemed very small indeed. It came with a bathroom (toilet, sink and shower) which was shabby but sufficiently clean. We never lacked hot water although we only seemed to shower at very unconventional times of the day. The only major problem with the bathroom was that there was no door separating it from the rest of the bedroom and that the window was nailed shut (although there was a vent on the window which allowed for air circulation). If you don’t have a bathroom there’s a communal toilet on every floor, and there’s only about 6 rooms per floor anyway. The rest of the room was adequately sized with a double and a single bed, a wardrobe a small desk area and a chair.
The full length window looked out unto a small sort of balcony area. This was more of a nuisance than a perk – if you’re sensitive to noise then you will not sleep well here. You could, perhaps, ask if you could have a room that looks unto the dingy courtyard at the back of the hotel – not a pretty view but you’d probably hear a lot less noise. The blue metro line actually runs outside (not underground) for that particular portion of the line so you will hear it (although it stops before 1am). That is not the main problem, though. Police drive by every now and then, and there are occasional people shouting outside. Our window did not close properly, nor did the old metal shutters outside it – we had to try and tie them together with string, but any gush of wind would send them flying open again, leaving light and noise from the street pour in (there were no curtains).
Another potential problem, also, was the cold. There was one ancient radiator next to the door (far away from the draughty window) which was little use at heating up the room. Perhaps it would be warmer in one of the small single rooms, though. Not a problem in the summer, I imagine, when one would be delighted for some fresh air and a cooling breeze from outside, but we were relatively lucky that it wasn’t a very cold week when we stayed in mid November –because it must be freezing there in the heart of winter.
Surprisingly there was a decently sized flat screen television on the wall so it was nice to look at that if we were very bored (although we hardly used it). The television was plugged into one of only 2 available plugs in the room (which is a bit of a nuisance if there are 3 of you), though, and the only decent one at that, so we had to unplug it if we wanted to recharge anything. So it would be a good idea to bring some sort of multiple adapter plug with you. The second plug was crudely attached to the end of the over-sink light in the bathroom which was awkward.
Also the room had been newly repainted meaning that it had nice, bright white walls, but that the paint fumes hadn’t yet left the room which really annoyed one of my roommates (meaning that we had to sleep with the window open making it even colder). But at least the wood effect linoleum floor was something cleanable and not a germ-ridden carpet. Also, there are 5 storeys in the hotel with no elevator (obviously) so it’s quite a climb up that spiral staircase if you’re near the top.

Overall this hotel was not that bad – in a seedy but in many ways convenient location (particularly for transport). The room wasn’t great but we slept in it at least. Paris is a city where you should be out and about discovering things, not wasting piles of money on a hotel room (when you could be spending that money on an excursion or some shopping), and so in that respect this hotel, being very affordable and conveniently next to a metro station servicing 2 lines, fit the bill perfectly.

Please don't ever consider to stay in this hotel. We had worst experience in this deadly terrible hotel.
We, I and my sister, booked this hotel for the trip around EU on October. France was our last destination and we put all our enthusiasm on this place. We booked throgh www.venere.com for two night stays.
The first night, we checked in quite late at 9p.m. We came there, and the manager told us we were moved to another hotel for one night because of fully booked. We symphathized with the hotel and walked with the manager to find another place to live. He told us to come back and check in for the second night the next morning.
The next morning, we came and checked in at 11 a.m but he said the room is being cleaned and asked us to go somewhere for 1 hour. Later, we came back and the room not finished. We waited there. During the time waiting, I went to check the hotel. Such a dirty hotel with tiny room, tiny corridor, no elevator, old and smelly. However, we had no other choice. After 2 hours, rooms not ready yet. We told him we would go and see France and will come back later to check in and left our luggage there.
We came back at 12p.m and wanted to check in to sleep. The waiter insisted we had to pay before check in. Having no cash, we used card. But the card machine of the hotel not working, we did not how to do. The around area was very dangerous with some gangs near the station. We could not go and get cash at that time. How bad was the receptionist, he did not allow us to check in. We, two small girls from Vietnam did not know how to do. The receptionist told us if we did not have money, we could not stay and check in there. so furious with the rude behaviour of the receptionist, we chose not to stay there. Before leaving, we asked "you have to make sure that we will not be charged for this night" and he agreed. We even called the manager to ask him for our staying and pay the next morning but he refused.
We had to go and find another hotel in the midnight and luckily we found one. We came back to Vietnam and found that Le Bervic still charged us one night stay which is 43 pound. Such a deadly terrible hotel. We advise you do not ever consider to book and stay in this hotel.

My first impression of driving down the main boulevard near the Bervic was that we had stepped into a 3rd world country. It did not seem very safe and the area was seedy. This was confirmed when we checked in and although the parking was free on the street at the front they strongly recommended we left the car in a nearby security carpark. Nonetheless we did not and the car was fine for 5 days. Reception was very friendly and helpful during our stay. The room and hotel is very old but charming nonetheless. The showers required a clip to keep them from staying on which was a nuisance. and the water temp was variable. Also the noise form the street was annoying especially the scooters and police etc that tear up and down the main boulevarde all night. Location was good and right on the Barces Metro Line which is handy to get to Paris quickly. We often walked into the Paris heart and this took approx 30mins. Location is right near Sacre Couer, Montmartre and Moulin Rouge. Restaurants are plentiful a short walk away down towards Gare Nord (train station) and also towards Moulin Rouge. Beds were OK and rooms quite small but you cant expect miracles for the price.
